RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A traffic alert for drivers in Chesterfield.

An improved stretch of Woolridge Road re-opens Friday morning.

It's now four lanes across the Swift Creek reservoir instead of two.

The road is also higher and lined with buffers to keep flood waters away.

The county says it's looking at upgrades for the rest of the road but those won't happen in the near future.
